HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) - Authorities have arrested a 29th person listed in a 31-person federal indictment that came as part of a massive gang bust, while two wanted men remain at-large.
Joe Cabrera was arrested in Florida Wednesday, Holland police confirmed to 24 Hour News 8,.
Another 28 of the 31 people named in the federal indictment were arrested Tuesday. All 31 allegedly have connections to the Holland Latin Kings gang, authorities say. Charges include racketeering, drug trafficking and weapons violations.
Jose Hernandez and Uvaldo Ruiz remain at large, according to US Attorney Patrick Miles. Authorities are asking for the public's help to find them.
Anyone who has information on Hernandez or Ruiz is asked to contact Ottawa County Silent Observer at 1.887.88.SILENT.
One of the gang members, Desidario Amaro, an alleged regional leader for the Latin Kings, has pleaded guilty to a charge related to racketeering. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
That plea agreement with the US Attorney means Amaro must cooperate with police and testify before grand juries about any past criminal activities. This could help them track down Hernandez and Ruiz.
Amaro and the other alleged Latin Kings are being charged under RICO, a statute put in place to fight organized crime. Under RICO, the federal government cannot only prosecute the crime bosses, but also their associates and all those working underneath them.
